PLOT:

Erin Cottrell and Dale Midkiff reprise the roles of Missie LaHaye and her father Clark Davis in the fifth installment of Janette Oke's inspirational and best selling Love Comes Softly series.

Two years after the death of her husband, Missie knows that it is time to move on. She heads home with her son to be near her parents and to return to teaching. Certain she will never find love again. Missie redirects her feelings and when the "orphan train" arrives in town, she adopts Belinda, a feisty young teenager who's arrived with a secret. As Missie struggles with raising Belinda, she finds she is falling for the local sheriff who might be the only man who can help her save Belinda....and herself.





Movie Review:

I think there are mixed reviews on this one for two main reasons.

#1 - the storyline of the movie does not follow the storyline of the book it's supposed to be based on, written by Christian Author, Janette Oke.

#2 - Many are disappointed that Missie's husband, Willie Lahaye, was killed. He was a great addition to this series - arriving in the second movie. Having him exit, as he did in the 5th Movie seemed cruel and wrong to Love Comes Softly Movie fans. Myself, included!

If you saw this movie without reading the book or seeing the other movies- I could imagine one enjoying it much more. However, if you saw the rest of the Love Comes Softly Series, then I'm certain... you won't want to miss this one!

Missie's character is very strong. She moves back home to be with her family, yet she takes on great responsibilities by helping the orphan children and teaching school, again. Missie gradually learns to open her heart again and fall in love with the very handsome Sheriff, Zach Tyler.


See or Skip:

See, but there are some rough moments... a Shooting & Death, some Orphan Children are mistreated, etc...
